Chinatown, Sydney

#4 of 14 in Neighborhoods in Sydney
Sydney's Chinatown is the oldest and largest Chinatown in Australia. Some top-tier Chinese chefs moved to Sydney in the 1990s, making this district world-famous for its Asian cuisine. There are Asian shops and open-air markets selling everything from traditional Chinese medicinal herbs to jewelry, meat, fish, flowers, vegetables, books, electronics, and inexpensive souvenirs. Several movie theaters offer daily screenings of documentary and feature films produced in Asia. Asian art galleries, restaurants, karaoke bars, shopping malls, and small boutiques attract visitors from around the world. While you can visit the area on your own, there is so much to see here, many tourists opt to join an official tour.

  • Am to explore the city on that Chinatown encountered. Went on a short trip to Sydney Chinatwon. This Chinatown is not to compare with New York BB´s or other Chinatowns. This "virtually does not exist" is a short street in the category about 400 m long with little Chinese shops. You go through a Chinese Gate front and rear and then it already was. If one wants to go there to best evening visit. It is lit and crowded with people.
